Hello.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, Android 4.4.2, and I've never had issues with openmsx until version 0.15.0-1.
Today I tested 0.15.0.159, 0.15.0.160, 0.15.0.161, 0.15.0.162, 0.15.0.164, 0.15.0.164, 0.15.0.181 and 0.15.0.182 versions and when they start, they all show the "Powered by SDL Simple Directmedia Layer" screen, and then the openmsx crash.
I reinstalled version 0.15.0.1 and the emulator works fine.
What could it be?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Don't install the daily builds they are test versions and can be unstable. We're working on a lot of internal changes and we replaced most 3rd party libraries that we used. All of these things need to be tuned and we'll make a better openMSX Smile

A quick reminder that nightly/daily openMSX builds are highly experimental. If things don't work at this time it's because we just switched over to a lot of so called 3rd party libraries and things need to be tweaked/fixed to work with these new components. For example we went from SDL1 to SDL2 in order to have better hardware support (on the host side) for openMSX

The builds are usually not very experimental and quite usable. But currently they are not very stable yet. Especially the Android build needs work to get in shape, as well as the Windows build.
Any help would be great!
